I think these are bootlegs.

Yeah this site sells nothing but bootlegs. I mean, they've even got Disney animated releases (see here: http://www.efilmic.com/p....asp?CID=28&PID=0396) that look nothing like the official ones (plus all they're discs are Region 0 - that would never fly with an official release of movies like these).

The site's official FAQ says:
Quote:
Where are these DVDs made?
Our DVDs are manufactured and licensed by Asian authorized distributors in Taiwan.

The exact definition of "authorized" is still up for debate, though...

I've seen those before. Those bootlegs are just DVD rips of old commercially released videos.

The funny thing about that is that all the official, American Warner cartoon DVDs I own ARE region 0. It says region 1 on the cover, but in reality they are region-free - in other words region 0.

Huh, that's actually quite interesting! Thanks for sharing that bit of info! New Bugs Bunny

Interesting to see that they're basically region 0 though, as I think companies were really protective with regions back in the early DVD days. Now-a-days, most movies on Blu-ray from the big studios have all of the regions on them, basically making them region free as well (not sure if that's the case with any of the Looney Tunes Blu-ray sets, but it might be).

Yup, it's the case with all the Looney Tunes (and other Warner cartoon) Blu-rays. My Blu-ray player is region B (Europe) and I've never had any problems with them. Nor have I had any problem with DVD releases from Warner when I've tried them in region 2 DVD players, not even older DVDs from the 2000s.

Unfortunately, not all home video producers are as smart as Warner Bros. when it comes to this stuff. The Betty Boop Blu-rays from Olive are region A only, which is one of the reasons I only own one volume of those. And sadly, the same seems to be the case with all of Kino Lorber's releases. I got "The Inspector" on Blu-ray recently, only to find out I couldn't watch it on my player. So I doubt I'll be buying any of the Pink Panther Blu-rays unless I first find a way to make my Blu-ray player region free. (Sadly, that seems harder with Blu-ray players than with DVD players.)
